Earlier assessment of fragility, fracture risk possible by gauging bone strength

March 27, 2015

Changes in bone strength may provide an earlier indication of treatment effects of glucocorticoid and anti-osteoporosis therapies compared with bone mineral density changes, according to research published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.

Investigators compared the reference point indentation (RPI) technique as a measure of bone strength at the tissue level with DXA for measuring BMD.
